Sounds Of Austin Psych Fest #8: Tennis System
If I could dream up my absolute ideal festival in my head, it would probably end up looking a little bit like Austin Psych Fest. The Black Angels beat me to it, and that’s alright with me. They know what they're doing. For the fifth time, TBA and the Reverberation Appreciation Society are putting on one heck of a party down in Austin featuring the best and brightest of the psych rock scene. I’m not going (heartbreak), but if I was, this is who I’d be checking out for damn sure.
Like all serious parties, the Austin Psych Fest is having themselves a pre-party this evening. Playing said pre-party extravaganza is former DC denizens turned LA dreamboats Tennis System. A wise move was made by the psych powers that be to have Tennis System play this kickoff shindig, as the pretty yet terribly potent psychgaze the band makes is sure to give the people going to the fest exactly what they want. And, of course, makes those of us not down in Austin wish we were there even more.
